The IMO Sub-Committee on Ship Systems and Equipment (SSE 9) was held from 27 February - 3 March 2023.
SSE discusses the technical and operational requirements for systems and safety equipment on ships.
Lloyd's Register has published the Summary Report from SSE 9.
Key outcomes from SSE 9 include:
- Finalisation of the draft International Code of Safety for Diving Operations, (Diving Code).
- Extension of the new requirements for the ventilation of totally enclosed lifeboats to partially enclosed lifeboats and liferafts was not agreed, instead being referred to SSE 10 for further discussion.
- Finalisation of the draft amendments to the LSA Code and resolution MSC.81(70) to address the in-water performance of SOLAS lifejackets, which is expected to enter into force 1 January 2026.
LR's Summary Report includes an executive summary for those requiring a general overview, but also more technical information for those who would like more detail on the discussions that took place.
